Martin works on ocean model data products and service engineering and development.
Most of Martin's current work is on the EU Framework 7 project MyOcean, a large European project to develop operational oceanography as part of the European infrastructure under the GMES initiative.
Specific areas of work are:
MyOcean product delivery, which focuses on internet delivery of forecasting ocean model data products using internet services including FTP, OpenDAP, and Web Map Service.
The MyOcean Service Desk Web Portal, which aims to provide all the information and functions prospective and actual users need to understand, access and use MyOcean products and services.
Developing product and interface specifications for the connections between the MyOcean sub-systems and for delivery of products and services to users.
Martin took up his current post Met Office in November 2006, from a background in observational oceanography. His previous post was as a postdoctoral research associate at the University of East Anglia, working on the National Environment Research Council's "Autosub Under Ice" programme. He holds a PhD in Oceanography and BSc (hons) degree in Meteorology and Oceanography from the University of East Anglia.
